Data Stream Mining , Frequent Itemsets, Sliding Window
Sliding window is an interesting model for frequent pattern mining over data stream due to handling concept change by considering recent data. In this study, a novel approximate algorithm for frequent itemset mining is proposed which operates in both transactional and time sensitive sliding window model. This algorithm divides the current window into a set of partitions and estimates the support of newly appeared itemsets within the previous partitions of the window. By monitoring essential set of itemsets within incoming data, this algorithm does not waste processing power for itemsets which are not frequent in the current window. Experimental evaluations using both synthetic and real datasets shows the superiority of the proposed algorithm with respect to previously proposed algorithms.
